Most brides-to-be may have dreamed about their perfect wedding dress when they were still little girls. In fact, none of us will deny that a perfect wedding is a shared dream of most girls. As a result, you will try your best to search for the best wedding gown or dress.
You will probably read a lot of bridal magazines after your engagement and try to figure out the style of the wedding dress you love. However, searching for and selecting a wedding dress should not be just relied on the images in the magazines. Sometimes a wedding dress looks perfect when it is worn by a fitting model but not on an “average” female. At the end of the day we have to admit that not all of us are fitting models. You may not get the same effect as the fitting model gets when you wear the same wedding gown as the model wears.
Unless you are planning to rent a wedding dress or borrow it from your friend, you have to order your gown at least half year before your big day. It can take you up to four months to get the dress from the day you order it. It may take even longer time if you order a gown with lots of handmade details. You have to bear in mind that you should allow yourself plenty of time to shop for your wedding items. It is also true for your wedding dress. You will just make wrong decisions if you decide everything in a hurry.
Besides, you should never just read the magazine and decide the style of your wedding dress. As discussed before, a dress that looks good on a fitting model may not look good on you. You should try different styles to see which one fits you well.
You have to consider your skin color, body shape, height, hair style and so on in order to search for your perfect gown. You should select your wedding dress based on the image you see on the mirror but not the photos on the magazines. You need to open to different options and styles in order to get the perfect dress.
Consider the color of the wedding dress, some brides insist that the only choice should be a white color one. However, this is not always true. Besides your preference, the choice of color mainly depends on the color of your skin. There is no point to insist on a white color one if it does not suit you well. Again, you should try different colors before making your final decision.
You can also consider going to the bridal shops which offer wedding dress with your friends or relatives. You can listen to their ideas and advices when you are trying different dresses. However, you have to really bear in mind that it is your wedding and you should be the one who makes the decisions. You are seeking for the advices from your friends and relatives. You should never just rely on their advices.
